Randolph-Macon Academy students faced off against the faculty and staff in a fund-raising basketball game on March 2 that raised nearly $900 to benefit “Imagine No Malaria.”

The faculty/staff team earned the most points with the final score of 32-28.

In addition to contributors sponsoring players, a trivia contest and a half-court shot contest at halftime helped to raise funds.

The trivia contest was hosted by Maria Maxwell, coordinator of “Imagine No Malaria” in Virginia. Four students made the half-court shots, earning the $20 prizes in cash and gift cards: Kota Ikemoto, Sam Beavers, Ebot Makia and Fafa Eke-Spiff.

The R-MA Parents’ Association sold baked goods, drinks and “Imagine No Malaria” bracelets.
